ensure that rules are based on good data and sound science. third, we are going to see -- you're going to see a significant respond to expand the expertise of our law firm, the national chamber litigation center. and in other areas of our institution in order to deal with expanding regulation. our preference is always to work within the legislative and regulatory process. and we do that on a daily basis, but when rights have been trampled on, our regulators have overstepped their bounds, well, we will then just take necessary legal action. now let me turn to something we should all care about any very important way, that's immigration reform. america has grown because we have attracted and welcome some of the most talented and the hard-working citizens of the world to our shores. immigrants teach in our universities. they invest and invent in our technological companies. they staff our hospitals. they care for our elderly and our young. they harvest our food and they serve in our armed forces. given are changing demographics, we need more workers to sustain our economy. support our ret
is the continued united states pre-eminence, not just in demand space programs but in terms of science and inventions and everything else that goes along with it, and it ended up being washed away in the flood of stimulus france. as this hearing has highlighted already, the president's approach to human spaceflight lacks a clear mission and he is relying on the success of commercial space, which i agreed is vital that has dragged its feet and pushed its flight at nasa. i strongly support a public-private partnership for the country's space policy. however, it is up to nasa to develop the heavy lift rocket because the private sector doesn't have enough funds to do it by itself, and that heavy lift rocket needs enough thrust to overcome the administration shortsightedness. now why cancel inhofe, the international partners who supported the mission, president obama has taken a been there and done that approach but we haven't been there for 40 years and the international partners who would have helped us have never been there. if we cannot lead the world with space, china and russia will i
such as the red cross. even the science fiction story. what we're dealing here really when you come down it the oil industry in familiar grew up in almost completely isolation and this is virtually a unique case. we have other places where oil industry have gone grown up and run by national oil companies. almost in every case, in fact in every case, the industries were first founded by foreigners and then were taken over. not so in the case of russia where from the 19 20s rate on the oil industry was home grown and developed the own culture and civilization even as the soviet union did with the own language and culture. i sometimes like to tell my classes that the story of russia in the 20th century is very much that have a people who decided that capitalism didn't work. so it's though they are piled in to a space capsule and took off and landed on the planet mars and started a different civilization which the market was thrown out in prices and private ownership and built that civilization and made it run for nearly six or seven decades, not well, but it ran. then they decided it wasn't
cross. this was profitable and, therefore, of interest. it's even a science fiction story, because what we're doing here really when you come right down to it is the meeting of two alien civilizations after 70 years of the soviet period. the oil industry, in particular, grew up in almost complete isolation from the waste, and this is virtually a unique place. we have other places where oil industries are run by national oil companies, but in almost every case -- in fact, in every case, these industries were first founded by foreigners and then were taken over. not so in the case of russia where from the 1920s on at any rate for all practical purposes the oil industry was home grown and developed its own culture, its own civilization even as the soviet union did with its own language and its own culture. i sometimes like to tell my classes that the story of russia in the 20th century is very much that of a people that decided that capitalism didn't work, so it's as though they all piled into a space capsule and took off and landed on the planet mars and started a completely different civ
of the house committee on science, space and technology. that's true. and then there was a theory that romney just wasn't a very good candidate. didn't say things people understood, didn't connect the people very well have a somewhat awkward. remember when he went to michigan, his home state that primary can set victories for the a rate and michigan. the actual quote was i love this day. it seems right here. the trees are the right height. [laughter] away from here i find no trees that please. no trees at such a perfect height as thieves. for me i cannot ever be a piece with trees that grow no higher than one sneeze or two tall trees that splinter entries. wisconsin sure has bragging rights and cheese in california is rich and kidneys in colorado this week to take your skis. connecticut of course has lyme disease. [laughter] and none of these semi-prepared to sneeze, but here we have the perfect height of trees. [laughter] [applause] and according to that theory, romney just wasn't a very good candidate. they should've nominated somebody else. it is also the theory that there were demographic
to the science and space technology program he was involved whether they will try to pick up some sort of new copyright enforcement has yet to be seen. >> host: did you see a policy coming forward again? >> whether there will be some sort of effort to have some kind of copyright law mind, i think it is a possibility. but i think a lot of lawmakers were a little frightened by the backlash for that. i think there is a movie industry and the recording industry is looking for smaller issues that they can push. >> host: lee terry is taking over for cliff stearns. on the energy and commerce committee, is that right? >> no, he is taking over the position that mary bono mack had and he will be the vice chair of the commerce committee. it will be interesting to see how and whether she tries to assert her authority. she has actually told me that she is interested in tackling something related to piracy. but i would agree that it's very unlikely. all members are extremely wary of trying to enact laws of technology that they perhaps have an expertise on. and that they don't understand all the ramificatio
engineers to hire. britain's universities lead the world in teaching science and engineering and yet we have an annual shortfall of 60,000 graduates and nine of ten post graduate students in those subjects are from overseas. what more can we do? >> my hon. friend is entirely right and we need to tackle this problem at every level, making sure we are teaching math and science and stem subject probably and there are signs the number of people taking those subjects are increasing. we need to make sure our universities are properly funded and make sure that is the case but we also need to raise the profile about engineering and that is one of the reasons we introduced the 1 million pound prize, for engineering. that combined with 34 university technologies will make sure we train engineers we need for the future. >> it is more important than ever in northern ireland that we continue moving forward away from violence and create stability and i am sure the prime minister will agree to me that food participation and support for the political and democratic process by everybody so people's issues ca
wonderful co author who is a professor of political science and political philosophy at harvard many years ago when we were both at princeton university we taught a course on ethics and public policy and that led to lescol offering several books on the deliberation and democracy. >> in the spirit of compromise, president gutmann, you give to legislative examples, 1986 tax reform health care act. if you would, walk us through those. >> this is a tale of two compromises, and it begins with ronald reagan's presidency, where tax reform was a hugely important issue and hugely difficult issue to get done between republicans and democrats. those of us that live through the years recognize that people thought they were very polarized. tip o'neill was a staunch liberal democrat and ronald reagan's staunch republican. yes they crafted a bipartisan compromise with bill bradley and bob packwood being a part of the movers of this compromise. fast forward to the affordable care act it was arguably even more difficult to craft a compromise within one party, the democratic party because of the permanent c
, a science writer. c-span: was her name heineman? >> guest: christine russell. she kept her maiden name. my dad, then heineman started out in the public sector and ended his career working for generally let trick and now teaches in boston. c-span: this is the well-known then heineman. was this other also well-known? explain not. this is the first deadline this review, but how do they fit into the past? >> guest: i had a very -- my parents and my grandmother are amazing people and i feel very lucky. c-span: what did they do? >> guest: my grandfather was a self-made man. his father actually killed himself in 1929 after the stock rocket crash and was left alone to fend for his family. went to school, claimed his plan to law school and started out as a lawyer and started running northwest railroad and a number of other businesses in chicago. with very specific advisor to president johnson and i think my dad and i inherited a lot of their social believes and i carry a lot of that into the filmmaking i do for sure. c-span: by the decided dartmouth to study history? >> guest: i didn't know what el
exploitation, spreading its roots in science and technology around the world. and he had enemies here. his enemies with the southern segregation. the anti-imperialists, and the conservatives who said american fascists are those people who think wall street -- so he had enemies and those enemies want to get rid of him on the ticket in 1944. the big problem was he was enormously popular. on july 20, 1944, the night the convention starts in chicago, potential voters who they want to run on vice president dick 65% said they wanted wallace on the ticket or 2% said they wanted harry truman. the question was how was the party bosses going to support. roosevelt was very feeble. when party bosses are to come to them and they want to get wallace off the ticket, roosevelt says to him, i support wallace but i can't fight this campaign myself. i'm not strong enough again. i am depending on you guys to do it. finally, caved in. his family was furious. eleanor roosevelt was furious with them. every one of the rows of kids was furious with them. they were huge wallace supporters. he had all the black dele
their ideology, their theology, their learning, their science and exploration. and it was really a convenient place for learning. it still is today. we trace our history back to 1753, when the library company formed by the merchants and the men of the day to form a library greater than any one individual could. they did that in order to share resources and at that time the city was growing and they wanted to make that information available to all. so, the providence library company exists in many places throughout the city, often being at the seat of town government and they purchased their materials from england. their original collection was about 345 titles and they unfortunately had a tragic event in the late 1700's where there is a fire on christmas eve and out of those 345 titles they originally purchased they lost many in the fire. except for 70 there were still in circulation. we actually have some of that founding collection. what's really and just adjusting is they had the foresight to make a notation so that the new they were following the original founding collection and as it the
if it interferes with pleasure or other functions. christian science believes the children should not be taken into the doctor when they're ill is reported to successfully so that has led to an abuse. >> what is going on? is there a substantial burden so otherwise does it justify the invitation? burqa but since it is not irreversible and does not impair other bodily functions. if it is physical or sexual violence then it should be legally punished. of the rise it is in the same category of other requirements that has the unpleasant to parents put on their children. some appear to violate laws against child safety that is when yale professor admitted in her book with tiger mother she forced her daughter to stand outside in the cold without supper and also at the piano without faster access because she did not master a difficult passage of piano work was a child abuse and one wondered why the police were not on her doorstep but the answer was obvious. but that is the sort of thing to intervene. similar tactics could be used to get the girl to wear burqa it is more emotional blackmail like my fat
's not rocket science. oversight investigation is not rocket science. i used to teach at american university and i used to teach a lot of courses to cops and prosecutors. this isn't rocket science, and i don't know of age if age should be rocket science. i am very impressed with some people i talk to at a.i.d. has said we really need to design programs knowing where we are working. if we know we are working in the most corrupt country in the world we designed a program that protects the funding. i was very impressed with that. now i haven't seen a program without built-in but people tell me they are thinking about it. somebody told me that her regions do that. yes, circ? >> previously i ran a team for operations under dod to afghanistan. one of the things that i came away with is that afghanistan, afghans are good at running their own businesses. but what we do is we create an incentive whereby running business is about short-term profit. so what we have didn't, is partner with afghan, several afghans over there and we are trying to build electricity infrastructure were afghans actually have
their name, will feel that love. so that's my challenge to everybody, and this is -- science shows if you look in the stars tonight and we live in manhattan so probably won't be able to see a star, but just imagine, when you look up and see a star, think to yourself that hundreds of billioned of light years away and many of those stars you're looking at are gone. they no longer exist. and the billions of years it's taken for the light to get to you. the star itself is gone. but the energy and light that a body gives off while it is alive goes on forever. generations unborn feel the warmth and light of that body. that's who we are. we may have a finite time on the earth but sever single day we should be determined to burn as bright, warm, and brilliant as possible, and that's the challenge, and ultimately the changemakers are never the elected officials, the names you read in history. this country has been fueled because of a conspiracy love, and even though we don't know the names of the people, they're the one that today we benefit, and the last thing i'll say, my father, who i talk abou
experiments, and, obviously, his science advisors were interested in all of the different intellectual dimensions of it. he had a very clinical spent i think, that are three stars. he is leaving, no doubt about that, but his to advisors are talking back to them come and that is not easy to do in an oval office. >> which you like. >> and i give them credit hiring brave enough people to talk back to them. it's good conversation among smart people. and the book also gives transcripts of the conversation a year later with the same people in which these smart people have almost reversed position. easy saying, is this too dangerous? should we think more -- the science advisors are saying we're going to spin off so much amazing technology. we're going to define the ninth \60{l1}s{l0}\'60{l1}s{l0} -- 1960s by what we're doing. >> i also love the change in mr. webb a year later as the president is based of asking him, is this the top priority? absolutely, sir. >> i think he also asked whether it can be done on demand. is there a way of doing this? and perhaps part of the shift comes from a kind
've got good lath is going to be taking over, and smith is going to be moving to the science, space and technology committee -- >> host: so bob goodlatte of virginia's going to be the new chair of the judiciary committee? >> guest: right. so, and he was involved in the writing of sopa. whether they're going to try to take up some sort of new copyright enforcement is yet to be seen. >> host: do you see sopa, pipa policy proposal coming forward begun? >> guest: i don't think there's an ap tide for the -- appetite for the same fight again. whether there'll be some sort of effort to have enforcement of copyright rules online i think is a possibility, but, i mean, i think a lot of lawmakers you wea little frightened by how the sopa fight went and the backlash to that. i think the movie industry and the recording industry is kind of looking for maybe some smaller issues that they can push. >> host: now, lee terry is taking over for cliff sterns, correct? on the energy and commerce committee, is that right? >> guest: no. he is taking over the position that mary bono mack had on the commerc
how advanced they are in the sciences. the chinese can be religious as well. and they became determined capitalists. and basically they are rooted in this. and i agree with you, absolutely. one thing i forgot to mention was christianity and the americas and what they did was say that we will not follow the old religions. so we will find saint anthony and others and etc. and it means re-creating images of their duties and is lightly internalized so that they could understand how this third and how accomplished they were as human beings. there was another phase which was very prominent. it had to do with christianity and there were a lot of deities and they worshiped with the same liturgy. so religion itself like culture, it is not always respected. >> now we will go to the gentleman back there. >> hello. as a second-generation consumer of the culture, i find myself representing this. >> yes, i am a consumer of yoga culture. since we have been children we have consumed it as a fiction and yet you made a statement that as long as we continue to fictionalize this, we are doomed t
't supposed to happen. american political science is basically pluralist in nature that says that they are contending forces in society to counter big corporations whether it is the labor union or other kinds of institutions that counter that the power of the corporation. but corporations will always imagined to be governed by antitrust law. they were not supposed to control a handful, 64% of all of the wealth and the country. that kind of power just isn't imagined in spending billions of dollars a year lobbying congress. that wasn't imagined in american political science so i don't really think american political science has grappled with what we have now. and also our economic theory always presumes basically a market economy. he may have wanted to overthrow the competitive capitalism, but citigroup did. when and if you are too big to fail that basically means you are not a market anymore. you know, you are into something else. and i don't think an economic theory either there were any real answers or ideas for how you deal with the situation like this. so i think that we a
to go to that is on the far side of the moon that can be the robotic science can do the mining for the ice crystals and convert that into hydrogen and oxygen which is fuel the conference recently as following a workshop that has been sent out in the international learning basis by practicing on the island of hawaii to assemble a large number of large objects. you put the first one down and where are they expected? another one down at some distance away how do you put them together? if it's on hawaii, you do that through a satellite back to the mission control. so you prove that you can do something like that here in the united states. then we do it at the moon. why am i so enthusiastic about that? because that's exactly what we want to do at mars. we want to put people on the moon of mars who can then assemble the base we will then send people and we should assure ourselves we should protect crew members from radiation as much as possible before they ever go somewhere and that's the moon, too. >> kevin has a two-part question and i should ask the second part first. do you belie
that are required by the evolving high value-added economy. and that doesn't just mean skills like math and science although we are now lagging behind 30, 40 other countries in the world in that regard. it also means skills that are associated with creativity and innovation. because our edge as a country comes in the area where we can use our creativity, but we also protect creativity in a way that places like china and others don't and in a content-driven world, a software-driven world, that combination of creative people and a system that promotes and creates and protects creativity is probably our real ace in the hole. >> host: david rothkopf, let's take bob's comment and tie that to your previous book, "superclass." you've mentioned now a couple times that we're creating this class of people way up here, and everybody else is being left behind, in a sense. >> guest: well, the gaps are growing between the richest 1% and, actually, the richest .0001%. and the rest of us. they have benefited more than anybody else in the course of the past ten years. most of the gains that have come, like 90% of t
, their science exploration, and was a convenient place for learning and still is today. we trees our history back to 1753 when the library company formed by the merchants and the men of the day to form a library greater than any one individual could come and they did that in order to share the sources, and at that time the city was growing and they wanted to make that information available to all. the providence company existed throughout the city often being in the town government and they purchased the material from england. the original collection was about 345 titles. we unfortunately have a tragic event in the late 1700's where there was a fire on christmas eve with 345 titles they had originally purchased. they lost many in the fire except for about 70 that were still in circulation. we actually have some of the founding collection. and what's really interesting is they have a foresight to link the notation so they knew they were falling real original founding collection and as i got back into the library. so, if you see closely upon the top there is a little tiny pencil times so they made
pleasure or bodily function. christian science believes children should not be taken to the doctor has also been of the gate is successfully in some treatment has led to abuse and neglect conviction. important to treat them together is there a burden on the religious freedom? doesn't compel public interest to justify the imposition? 534 miners is not about genital mutilation is not irreversible in danger health or bodily function. if imposed by physical or sexual violence they should be legally punishable never it is in the same category as other requirements that parents impose on their children. some practices to file a lot of child safety headsman blind law professor from yale law school admitted in her book the tiger mother she forced her daughter to stand outside in the cold without supper and also at the piano without bath to access the kitschy had not mastered a difficult passage. some wondered why the police were not at her doorstep but the answer was she was a law professor but they could intervene. another tactic to get the girl to where it it would be intervention that most are e
something like this secret history of the universe as revealed through a cult science in the troy, michigan, which i almost used for my title. [laughter] so just to tell the story very quickly, he and his entire family were brutally, gruesomely murdered. they were beheaded and his children were killed as well and it was this big sensational story at the time. you can go through the free press archives and plan on this coverage. and it was never solved. at a certain point i realized it was not far from where i was living over in eastern market. so what to check it out for his house was is just a field now. i just kind of filed it away. weirdly enough, probably a year later, there was another murder, almost literally across the street. it was the drug thing and these kids were trying to scare -- two rival drug houses in this zone and these two teenagers were trying to scare off their rivals and so to do this, i ended up killing them horribly dismembering this guy come in the this random guy and scattering audi parts around literally across the street from the southern murder. so i thought it
was an editor, what they call an acquiring nature. worked in social science and history for a number of years and became executive editor and editor-in-chief of perhaps two different directors. c-span: what did you learn in that job that you applied to your book on teddy roosevelt or harry truman? >> guest: well first of all you learned something about writing. i read hundreds of manuscripts over the years. you learned what is good writing and what is not good writing. i was very particular. if even plus a famous author submitted i would turn it down or i would say get yourself an editor and rewrite this. it's an interesting story whatever it was and of course i made a few enemies by doing that. and then there were the authors who wrote like a dream, and i loved publishing them. i have also instituted a very large translation program at harvard when i had the power to do this. we probably published the most important history books coming out of france over a 10 or 12 years period. with the french were writing about was what they called the history over four or 500 years, not the history of 10
say in the social sciences. we had a hypophysis. health care is the one area that all presidents know. they tend to be very sickly bunch. president by president you would be surprised how many health care problems they had to be the john f. kennedy got the last rites of the catholic church three times as an adult and his father was weeping by his hospital bed this was just a few years before he runs for president. so the hypophysis these are men who understand health and illness and by the way they are so sickly because the secrecy is more important than good health care but they don't get good health care at least that has been true in the past. and so of course during to be sensitive to health care issues. wrong, wrong. never was a hypothesis more refuted. they are tough guys. candy may be sickly but he wants to give the impression of health and it doesn't matter at all. what does matter interestingly the health of the people they loved. every president while in office conference the illness, take kennedy's case his father has a stroke. health care goes from i can t get or leave it
madison called at the convention, saying, gentlemen, we are engaged in the new science of government. nobody had tried that before. people ought to appreciate that. it had never happened before, and it will probably never happen again that a system of government will be devised by a seminar. i mean, you know, three month long seminar compost of the political leaders of the entire country. that will not happen again, and you can't appreciate that unless you seep yourself in the times including reading the federalist papers. c-span: in this book, at the beginning, you list a bunch of people that you thank. >> guest: yeah. c-span: we counted -- >> guest: probably missed some too. c-span: twenty-three of your former clerks. we had a former clerk of yours here several months ago, and i want to run this little thing and get your reaction to it. >> guest: all right. >> he and i had an intense argument of a statutory interpretation case, and he took me out and says, you have to talk to my clerks now, and i did. they were conservative clerks, marking me as a liberal, and i was the christian,
in crucial areas like education, technology, science, and energy." what's on the table for cuts? no social security, no medicare, the major drivers of benefits, but are the drivers of debt and deficit. what's on the table for spending cuts? >> guest: okay. there's a lot of questions there. >> host: right. >> guest: first of all, you know, the major drivers of the current deficits are two things. tax cuts for the wealthy and wars in iraq and afghanistan. this has been well documented by economists. let's not pretend like grandmother is responsible for the deficits. she's not. i promise you. yeah, you know, what would define a spending cut, again, cutting the amount of money that would pay for prescription drugs. getting the same drugs for $130 billion cheaper by untying medicare and medicaid's hands and lay low them to negotiation. that's a cut to save money, impacting the big guy, not the little guy. you know, if we sub subsidize ie name of family farmers, agriculture corporations. we, warn in the campaign talk about a balanced, and the rich on the revenue side, and increase the revenue si
to the customer through actuarial science and through claims management. our new role is to create an integrated delivery model driven by primary care providers that uses shared data at the point of care to improve outcomes, lower costs and create a better health care experience. at humana, our model integrates our delivery, data support for clip in additions -- clinicians and wellness and productivity platforms. and in many ways our motto is an evolution with its roots prevalent 20 or 30 years ago. but today simplicity is the key. we believe in integrated delivery model that emphasizes primary care can provide outcomes, lower the cost of care -- especially to patients with critical or complex medical needs, including patients in the medicare and medicaid program. the concept relies on primary care physicians to coordinate care for patients, helping them navigate the health care system so they can receive the right care at the right place at the right time. like many organizations and industries, technology plays such an important role in enabling this to happen. we are investing in today in dat
came to converse and talk about their ideology, their theology, their learning, their science of exploration, and it was really a convenience for learning. and it still is today. we trace our history back to 1753, when the providence library company formed, by the merchants and the man at the day to form and library greater than any one individual could. and they did that in order to share resources, and at that time the city was growing and they wanted to make that information available to all. so the providence library company existed in many places throughout the city, often being at the seat of town government, and they purchased their material from england. their original collection was about 345 titles. and fortunately had a tragic event in the late 1700s where there was a fire on christmas eve, and of those 345 titles, they had originally purchased, they lost many end up fire except for about 70 that were still in circulation. we actually have some of that founding collection. what's really interesting is that they had the foresight to make a notation so that they knew
including it was an award from the american science association for the best book of political science. also a key facilitator of a summer security studies workshop that probably somewhere around 75 percent of all the security studies professors in the nation have attended. also a great deal of experience in the policy field, a senior fellow at the council on foreign relations where he served as director of national security studies, former staff member of the church committee and worked in the national security council and serve six years and a national security advisory panel for the cia director. most recently he was part of a task force of experts behind report entitled a new u.s. defense strategy for a new era. finally, and joined by paul wolfowitz, a scholar at the american enterprise institute with more than three decades of experience in public service and higher education and an incredibly wide variety of roles as president of the world bank, dean of the johns hopkins school of international studies, the state department director of policy planning in this is the secretary of state
to wide-open spaces, which usually fail to attract pedestrians. an interesting unique buildings in science and of humanity abound. these conditions or were you thinking about a series of specific rows further organized into what i call the 10 steps awoke ability. these are explored later or together they add up to a complete prescription for making cities more walkable. we must understand the city is not just a nice idealistic notion, rather simple and practical minded solution to a host of complex problems we face as a society. problems of daily on in our nation's competitiveness, public welfare and environmental sustainability. for that reason the book is less a design treatise than an essential call to arms. why we need so badly is the subject of the next section. so what you essentially have is a two-part book. you have the three reasons why we need marketability, which are wealth, health and sustainability and then the 10 steps which are for example step one, put cars in their place, mixed uses comic at the parking right and my transit work, et cetera. i will not talk at all because t

at harvard wrote a piece, an op-ed in "christian science monitor" in december of 2008 or so. ncrc proposed doing this with federal fund through a federal agency. and i wrote an article in "the new republic" in lar of 2010 suggesting treasury could use tarp fund and act exactly as the homeowners loan corporation had done, do this not for a profit but specifically to help homeowners. american securitization forum wasn't for that either. >> i just, real quick point on just clarify my position. i'm not opposed to the in concept the use of eminent domain for borrowers who are upside-down, who are current. i'm simply saying that the priority would be in my view for those who are already experiencing financial distress. when you get to the point of they're current, i think other tests could be put in place. that's why i think there needs to be a lot more detail on the table before there's a vote of yes or no. for example, if you're paying 70% of the your income to keep that mortgage current, do you want to force that homeowner to actually go into default before they actually get help and wreck th
, the bringing of science and technology. you're a world bank guy. you went to harvard and did a special the insight technology. so here we are, this tremendous knowledge in these fields. well, we talk about how they democracies, how do you see that from not only education, at full ride scholarships? that's ours but there are others whether it's french, canadians, the brits. so there are other ways for education, the empowerment of women and racial status inclusion, the international or american bar society helping with institutions. what do you think about that? or is it such that unless you're big much to that unless you big muscular defense, big muscular foreign aid, og, america is trying to toy with income and so is the west. i don't think america will ever be when be in anything, but i'm more of an additional school of thought. what do you think? >> thank you spent what would help colombia and help colombia in what would have latin america? >> thank you. certainly i can tell that the u.s. support and to speak very frankly on what you have request, the u.s. support on law enforcement
. if you can go into where there's a political science program or computer science program that you could get some sort of credit, school credit, college credit, high school credit for working as a poll worker, that may help with the process of identifying those folks who have the time to spend 12 to 14 to $16 a polling place. last but not least, you know, we talked about on more than one occasion how they are voting. if the election day was on holiday, or if it was -- if workers were given the ability to take today off without penalty, without losing pay, would they participate as a co-worker -- paul worker. there and be paid $180 for 12 or 16 hours they are not interested and a turnaround and lockout so there has to be a way to identify resources to work as poll workers and if we are in a more able, then some of the efficiencies of the polling places will increase i believe. >> thank you. cliff. >> obviously from a new jersey, new york standpoint, contingency planning -- because i don't think we have ever faced anything like this before, and would be a missed opportunity if we don't rea
including the wilson award for the best book of political science and a key facilitator of a workshop that some effect percent of all professors in the nation have attended. also with a great deal of experience in the policy field and a former staff member working on the national security council and advisory panel for the cia director and part of a task force from a report entitled the new u.s. defense strategies for a new era. as a scholar at the american enterprise institute has three decades of public service to higher education as dean of johns hopkins in the state department of planning and the secretary of state just up to the secretary of defense. i will pose a question to kickoff the conversation. the first question is what have been done in new york -- new year's eve a day? what are the key strategic questions? >> and thank you for being here. we just heard bob hale struggling with the process but for that budgetary operations but that at the moment and then in the 11th year but the pentagon does not have a lot of opposition. we don't know how many are needed because of abom
in where we don't trust med sip and science to help us figure out what the answer should be. >> that's to go to a point you made earlier, a process to take years, if not decades to understand ramifications; right? we're at the very beginning of a very long road here. >> can i just -- >> yeah. >> the -- i propose something both of you said. i'm not against experimentation. i'm actually in favor of it; right? my point was simply on an earlier occasion. it's difficult to stabilize it so to take the gay marriage example, i totally agree with you so far that the process worked well ervetion right? but it is also the case that we may not get enough time to run actual experiments because, you know, half the gay rights community understandably runs around with the due process clause in the hip pocket and doesn't go fast enough, then they jump the gun on this; right? you have -- the problem is not totally similar in the marijuana situation, but i agree with you. i mean, i think you need some comparatives, some states that don't go down the road; right? you don't want to process that is willie
-ed, and christian science monitor in 2008, proposed doing this with federal funds, federal agency, there is an article in new republic in march of 2010 suggesting that treasury could use t.a.r.p. funds and act exactly as the home owner's loan corporation has done, as not -- do this not for a profit but specifically to help home owners. american securitization forum wasn't for that, either. >> real quick point. just to clarify my position. i'm not opposed to the -- in concept the use of eminent domain for borrow are who are upside-down who are current. i'm simply saying that the priority would be in my view, for those who are already experiencing financial distress. when you get to the point of the current, i think there are other tests that could be put in place and that's why i think the bill needs to be more detail on the table before there's a vote of yes or. no for example, if you're paying 70% of your income, do you want to force that home owner to actually go into default before they actually get help and wreck their credit score and in the process of doing that, can't buy c
. no one had seen a toilet before. having improved sanitation is an adaptive science and maybe not the first priority always. also with respect to basic statistics, 90% of hava in the region, 90% of the caribbean hiv/aids is in haiti. the battle was tough before the earthquake. his 163,000 pre-earthquake orphans. likewise again, forget the lawyer top, that's $1 black sapir tenure and that means they are subject to being forcibly evict it at any time. one out of five generously are there today. in terms of the underlying systems to just grab you where we are, only 5% of the land is registered the way we would think a clear title and register property. 40% of people don't have documentation. so this documents are part of citizenship in the land registry and cadets are an insurgency of knowing who owns that land is an overwhelming issue and has been a problem. then you get to the earthquake here at my picture is not as good as post-earthquake pictures eric showed, but with physical damage on it to go through the political earthquake beyond buildings being destroyed. after the janu
stuff that nobody reads jackson a professor at harvard wrote an article for "christian science monitor." this was proposed doing this with federal funds and i wrote an article march 2010 suggesting treasury could use the tarpaulins enact as a homeowner loan corporation had done. but not for profit the americans securitization was not for that either. >> i am not opposed to the concept of the eminent domain for those who are current but the priority is those who experience financial distress then there are other test to be put into place before there is a vote of yes or no to keep the mortgage current chief force the homeowner to go into default before they wrecked their credit score and cannot buy clothes, food , , etc., etc.. there are parameters that is not just a cut off i am not paying today or yesterday. >> just to major people have the fact i make no apologies mrp is for-profit sometimes that is how problems are solved. second, we're not april of capital we charge a fee, $4,500 if we successfully help them keep the homeowner in the home. where it may get that number? it turns out
'm a professor of political science at reid college, founder and director of the early voting information center, a research center focusing on early absentee voting, and i have been, i've actually known caroline dyeson for more decades than any of us cares to admit. so i've been studying election administration and research methods for about 30 years at this point. i want to talk about b a few things, i want to respond very, very briefly, and i will keep my time. i'm cognizant of the time, very briefly to two comments on the previous panel. one was on poll worker training. you know, the hot new thing now are these things called massive online learning centers, massive online courses, and i'd urge election officials to look at some of these companies not because you can do what billion dollar companies can do, but the technology to produce really video-based training has gotten easily accessible, inexpensive, um, and so if you're looking for ongoing training, that might be one place to go. the second thing is the sense of no cell phones, and i have to react to that because i believe virtually ev
. we'll have to see as things develop. >> david grant, "christian science monitor." you -- the need to avoid punitive tax measures and lot of members are high effective rate payers in term of the corporate income tax. i was wondering if you could sort of talk about tax reform a little bit, whether you would be think it would be a good step toward to exchange the cost step for lower effective rates for energy producers. if you could say two words and two sentences what you expect out of tax reform, if anything in the coming year. >> great question. of course, it's very timely in the current dynamic as well. let me state from an industry stand point. our view is we should not be singled out for punitive tax treatment. there have been proposal where they identified in some instances more companies. that said we should change the tax code. it's punitive. it's not good policy at all. it's punitive designed to punish. we think the alternative approach is if we're going to have a corporate tax reform discussion, we're prepared to enter to that discussion, we'll be able the table along with
